Families, friends and anyone interested can follow the ceremony in live streaming, accessing through a link that will be provided a few days before the event. 

Online proclamation ceremonies

Since last spring, the University has adopted all the necessary solutions to give continuity to the students' academic path despite the restrictions due to COVID-19 with, for example, lessons via eLearning, online exams and thesis defences in videoconferencing. The proclamation of diplomas is no exception: USI has decided to offer an interactive online ceremony to celebrate the end of graduates' studies during this period of confinement, which unfortunately does not allow the traditional ceremony in the Aula Magna. 

Two different appointments
The ceremonies of the Faculty of Economics have been divided into two groups to ease interaction: 20 May at 5 pm, in Italian) and 21 May at 5 pm, in English.
